A little color on a rainy day

It felt like winter today even though the solstice is still two weeks away. I wasn't as frigid as it's been the last few days, but with a heavy mist, it felt much colder. The sky lightened once but the sun never broke through.

Today was laid back. We ran to the craft store to buy Jilda some paint to start on her Christmas cards. Afterward, we went by the produce stand. The family that ran the business since I was in high school, closed it a few months ago.

When we heard that another family was reopening, we were giddy.  We buy a LOT of fresh produce and raw honey.

We spent a good bit of time in the car and didn't have many steps so when we got back home we decided to walk.

While waiting for Jilda to get Taz the wonder Yorkie's sweater and halter on, I took the big dogs to the field and jogged in place to get some steps. The only color visible was the blueberry bushes. They are showing out right now.

I'm on call at the paper tomorrow. I'll have to shoot parade pictures, a Jingle Bell Run, and a toy distribution event at one of the local charities.

It's supposed to rain all day so it won't feel so bad having to work...or at least that's what I'm telling myself.


  1. The colors are spectacular at this time of year when everything else is blah.
    I hope that you have a great day at work photographing those events.
    Hugs, Julia

  2. What a blessing to still have some color left. Here it is dull and dreary. I'm thankful for the Christmas lights here and there that bring some cheer these days. Hope you stay dry in the rain and have a great day !

  3. I love a parade! Hoping it doesn't rain on yours. The color does look a lot like Christmas..... Ahhh, and dedicated walkers, I like that!
